Dr Banning is an excellent psychiatrist and has changed my life for the better in many ways. She has helped me stabilise my mental health, find the right medication and balance with therapy, as well as teaching me amazing coping mechanisms that help day to day. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Dr Banning has been extremely helpful in my life. Her kind and thoughtful approach has taught me much about how I process my emotions, and how my childhood experiences had adversely affected the choices I made in my life. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone who needs some help and guidance with their psychological state.

Anna is a wonderful support and a compassionate listener, whilst at the same time challenging you to help unlock what is holding you back. Her techniques go beyond just talking and truly tap into the whole mind and body. Highly recommend!

A Gentle, Practical Healer
Dr. Anna Banning is a psychiatrist that takes a holistic approach to tackling issues her patients bring to her. Gently treating the mind, body and spirit helps to get to the root of each problem, eases anxiety and makes the patient feel whole again. I have only visited Anna four times and already I am feeling a difference in my wellbeing and an inner peace I have not felt for most of my life. Anna is indeed a gentle, practical healer. Highly recommended. Thank you, Anna.
Supervision of Clinicians
I have been supervising (mentoring) groups of registered clinicians since 2011. The groups are small 7-8 people, ongoing, consistent and meet monthly.
I am a psychiatrist with a holistic orientation, familiar with most of the current practices used, including recent advances in trauma and body work. I initially trained as a child and family psychiatrist with a psychodynamic and family systems orientation. However, I welcome any orientation you bring for supervision and with whatever level of training or expertise. The only requirement is to be actively engaged in clinical practice. I enjoy using role play as an experiential part of supervision as this brings life and fun into the work.
There is a nominal fee of $60 for a 2 hour session, payable in advance for a year, but the first session is free and obligation free.
If you would like to be considered for membership to a group please contact me. I also offer individual supervision sessions.
I have been working with Anna in her clinical supervision group for over a year and have found Anna to be professional, knowledgeable, and skilful. She is an experienced supervisor in clinical practice who role models skills and awareness within supervision.

I have been attending one of Anna’s supervision groups for a year and find the groups stimulating, challenging and insightful. I appreciate Anna’s extensive therapeutic expertise and the role playing technique. The wide range of other mental health supervisees and their backgrounds and experiences also make it a very interesting and supportive morning. Thanks Anna.

I have attended Anna's supervision group for ten years. Through this time I have continued to benefit from her heartfelt approach that supports me both personally and professionally. Anna's generous facilitation which allows input from the other diverse range of professionals in the group has been profound in giving me a broad understanding of the range of possibilities in treating mental health.
I have been attending Anna's supervision group for over a year. I feel my confidence and therapeutic skills have improved. Anna challenges and encourages me to focus more on interventions that foster my clients' agency. This means I am less likely to get side-tracked during therapy so each session with my clients has become more effective. I have also learnt a lot by being in a group where different cases are discussed and different therapeutic approaches modelled. I highly recommend Anna's supervision group to any therapist who want to feel supported and inspired to do their best work.
I have participated in Dr Anna Banning's group supervision for several years. I have appreciated the range and depth of clinical and psychotherapy experience which Anna brings to the group. Anna nurtures a safe and stimulating learning environment and I very much appreciate the knowledge, confidence, and growth that I have developed in my own practice through my participation in her group supervision.
